iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available on Xfinity Mobile

Apple today announced three brand new iPhone models - iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. Naturally, the three new handsets will be available via all major US carriers, but what about smaller mobile operators? Well, we can tell you that Xfinity Mobile (launched earlier this year by Comcast) will sell the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus later this month.


Xfinity is planning to release the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on September 22, just like Apple and other carriers. Both devices will be available to pre-order online and in stores starting September 15. Pricing details haven't been shared, but Xfinity will probably go with Apple's official prices: iPhone 8 starting at $699, and iPhone 8 Plus starting at $799.  


Xfinity does not mention the iPhone X, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't sell it. As you may know, Apple will launch the iPhone X after the iPhone 8 series, on November 3, so there's still time for Xfinity to see if it can offer this handset, too.


Comcast is operating Xfinity Mobile as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that offers wireless services using Verizon's LTE network plus about 18 million Wi-Fi hotspots across the US. More information about Xfinity Mobile can be found at the second source link below.


Xfinity Mobile is already selling all the iPhone models that Apple currently has in stock, from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s series to the iPhone SE. Of course, the company also has high-end Android handsets in its line-up, including the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 (the new Note is available only to pre-order, but will be properly launched on September 15).
